Artist Cathy Horvath Buchanan, makes bright colorful art to cheer your heart, soul & home

I believe that everyone should have a home that is their sanctuary. A special place that you create to nurture your heart and soul. I believe that place should be cheerful and cozy and filled with beauty and color.
The art I create is in service of those beliefs.
When I'm making art, I'm happy in my heart.
I'd like to share that happiness with you : )

My name is Cathy Horvath-Buchanan. I work as a professional artist in the charming lakeside town of Port Stanley, Ontario, Canada, along with my husband Shawn and my adorable beagle hound-dog Patches.

My Journey
I started making art as a kid, as we all do when we're children, because we are free to express whatever is in our little heads. I didn't really plan on being an artist, it was just always who I was and what I did. Seems I never grew out of the stage of expressing whatever was in my little head and I just went with it.
After high school I continued on to art school. After three years I graduated and with diploma and paint brush in hand I went out into the world to make art to put in galleries. The thing about art galleries though is they are very local and have a very limited clientele. Paintings can hang in galleries for months before they sell; not a way to make a living.
It didn't take long to discover that being an artist isn't an easy path. To remedy this I also became a graphic designer. I worked full time as a designer while painting on the side. I did those things together for a few years, till I decided that I really just wanted to paint. I tried to figure out just how I could do that.

Selling My Art Online
It was at that time that the possibility of selling things on the internet was really becoming a reality.
Ebay was taking off, so in 2004 I experimented with selling my art there. I was surprised just how well it went. Soon I began to paint full time every day. The best part was I was selling everything I painted to collectors from around the world.

In 2010 I opened an Etsy shop, still selling original paintings. In 2014 I also added high-quality art prints made from my paintings. In 2018 I added coloring pages, greeting cards, downloadable inspiration printables and more....

The feedback from my customers has been absolutely wonderful. I try hard to make the buying experience positive and to produce original art and art prints that people will be proud and happy to have in their homes. Having sold over 2000 works of art I still have a 100%, 5 star rating, meaning, you can trust that when you purchase art from my studio I will do everything I can to make you happy.
Along with my Etsy shop I now also have a self named website.

My Painting Style Story
Many years ago and just out of art school I painted in a very realistic, somber style: lots of muted grays. Serious looking work that I created to be hung in galleries.
When I started selling my paintings online I noticed that my style changed in reaction to the platform. I found that the more colorful and simplified I made my paintings, the more intense was the thumbnail picture I could post online and the more able to capture your eye and draw you in so you would want to click on the listing. This revelation led to the style of painting I currently have.
What is also amazing about this change in style are the messages I receive from people who have bought my art, so incredibly inspirational, uplifting and positive. Not only is making art making me happy, the bold colors in my art really seem to be speaking to other people's hearts and making them happy as well. What could be better?
There seems to be a re-energizing effect that comes from surrounding yourself with bright happy images. See for yourself!

Licensing
Through my Etsy shop I have been fortunate enough to be seen by people who have offered me various opportunities including art licensing. In 2015 I signed up to be represented by the Montage licensing agency. The agency came to a close, but in February of 2017 I signed with another agency ArtLicensing.com. Hopefully you will see more of my art on products as a result.

And so the story continues ....
I've been expanding what I have to offer you so stay tuned to see what happens next....I'm really excited to have you along for the ride!

My art studio has original one-of-a-kind paintings, art prints, greeting cards, coloring pages, inspirational printables, and other artful products featuring the bright colorful artwork I've created to cheer your heart and home.
Relax, and take your time browsing through my shop. I'm sure you'll find something that you'll want to bring into your home to enjoy, or to give as a gift to someone

The artworks that I list are described and photographed as accurately as possible, although variations in individual computer monitors make it impossible for artwork to look exactly the same on every computer screen.
Returns are accepted if artwork arrives damaged. If I, or the shipping company is responsible for the damage, all monies will be returned.
I might possibly accept a return that is due to customer indecision, then only the artwork price will be refunded, not the shipping cost, the buyer is also responsible for return shipping costs to send the item back to me.
***I try to work with every customer, in order to resolve any issues to both of our satisfaction, if you have any problems please contact me so we can work it out***

In the event of a claim, CanadaPost will need to contact you to verify the validity of the information that I provide them.

Items are shipped out from Canada (my location).
